An enchanting picture book that playfully explains Buddha’s message of interdependent origins of all life to help raise cooperative and compassionate global citizens. What the Buddha saw in a peepal  leaf—cosmic harmony—has been retold lyrically by an imaginary character, Harmony —a leaf of the Bodhi tree.
